This recipe ended up being my Mother's Day gift to me!!! I made them the night before, which I highly recommend, and baked them the next morning. They baked just like a strata, raising a good 1/2" higher than the muffin pan and then settling back down after 5 minutes of cooling. They were incredibly moist, flavorful and just plain yummy!! There are so many ways to serve them. A little powdered sugar on top is a simple addition. Even though you certainly can serve them with butter and maple syrup, I found they only needed a drizzle of maple syrup for the perfect French Toast flavor as the croissants were bursting with butter! And even a simple glaze, vanilla, maple or cinnamon, would be wonderful and definitely elevate them to a supreme richness. I really liked the simplicity of the maple syrup - not to mention the ease of cooking. It's a great way to satisfy a French toast craving without having to stand over a hot griddle. These are going to be a staple for all sorts of occasions - including when I just want to feel pampered!
(and an added bonus is they reheat beautifully in the microwave too....if you are lucky to have any leftovers!)
With a bit of maple syrup......... YUMMMMMM!!!
